For some reason our local market’s bakery does not make Oat Bran Muffins. My wife really likes them and right now our only way to get them is to make them. I guess if you have a Cooking Blog this should be the only way. This oat bran muffin recipe is excellent, it’s simple to make, and there is very little cooking or prep time. Within a half an hour you can have hot muffins sitting on the breakfast table. Enjoy
